If a Tree Falls on the NY Times, Does it Make a Sound? (Anti-Israel propaganda from NYT)
INN ^ | May 08, 2014 7:41 AM | Jack Engelhard

… A while back, the Times ran a huge front page photo of young men and women dashing for a table full of food. The headline told a million readers that these were Palestinian Arabs who had been STARVED by Israel, but after international pressure Israel relented and the kids were finally allowed to eat.

I noticed that these kids were laughing and so did some other observers, until the Times finally admitted (on page 36) that Israel had nothing to do with this.

Muslims had been fasting for some holy day (Ramadan?) and were finally allowed to feast. But the damage was done.

That’s how bias works and how ignorance spreads. …

As lame as this is and as widely known today that Ramadan customs are, there are STILL folks who will be taken in.

Sad. Shaking my head.

So now we have all that, plus the Internet, and we know less than ever before. That’s because the news has never been as biased as ever before.

They may be trying harder than ever before but there is a lot more competition out there and they can't shut us up.

Does anyone want to go back to the days when Cronkite and Company had first, middle and final say on EVERYTHING?

“If a Tree Falls on the NY Times, Does it Make a Sound?”

Yes, because it would be screamed in 300 pt. type from the front page of the New York Post.

The editorial staff offices of the New York Times would quickly become as silent as death.

That’s because the news has never been as biased... They tell us what they want us to know and the rest they leave out, which means that The New York Times gives us half the news fit to print, and when I say The New York Times I mean it as a catch all phrase covering the rest of the news media. They all dance at the same weddings (excluding conservative stepchild Fox News).

Great post - thanks.
